… to get the button band exactly as I want it. It has been trying (just a few of the many attempts shown) but I think I’m finally there. Just got to make the thing now!
Thanks for all the comments on the previous post – I’ll write in more detail about the design process for this cardigan when I’ve finished it, and if you are interested I’ll write it up and share the pattern (although it might end up being a bit of a ‘insert your own measurement here’ type of thing).
Worth the effort I’m sure
oh, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been trying to do this or that! started a shawl last week and I tried to get the beginning just right … finally did do it but it took me about 5 tries!
I usually use a picked up button band, because knitting one skinny strip makes me crazy!
Button bands can be so tricky sometimes. I recently used the grosgrain ribbon on one and I definitely think that makes a difference. Good luck with yours.
hmm i am so intruiged by the whole process, love to get a peek – so thanks for sharing.
and i cant wait to hear it all in detail and see the wonderful result
its so very exciting and inspiring
Thank you for sharing the process you are going through – and yes, I’d love to see the pattern!
I don’t like doing button bands! I can’t wait to see it all finished.
I would love that. It’s beautiful. I love your blog!
LERVE that EZ jumper. It is so delicate, so beautiful, like all your work.
Hurry up Anna! We’re waiting you know! 😀 😀
